ABC Family has canceled its freshman drama series "Huge." The series based on the young adult novel by Sasha Paley, "Huge" was a ratings lightweight this summer, averaging 1.9 million viewers. The network originally ordered 10 episodes, but is declining to pick up the second 10 "back end." Earlier the network renewed dramas "Pretty Little Liars" and "Secret Life of the American Teenager."

While fans of Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky may have been surprised to see her on Huge with no makeup, scraggly hair, and a cynical and sarcastic personality, the 21-year-old says she's "never felt more pretty in a role." Blonsky spoke to TVGuide.com about how she brings Will to life, and how Will's feelings for Ian (Ari Stidham) and keeping a secret for Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff) will affect them in Monday's season finale.

Getting your heart broken is no fun, but it may just be what Huge's Amber needed. Last week, Camp Victory's resident pretty girl - though she doesn't think so herself - was dumped by hunky counselor George (Zander Eckhouse) barely two trysts into their secret relationship. She ended the episode in tears - a good wake-up call, says Hayley Hasselhoff, who plays Amber. "She came to camp to lose weight and I think now she realizes she got off-track because she focused all her time and energy on this boy that she shouldn't really be with," Hasselhoff tells TVGuide.com. "Her whole fling with George brings her to a place where she figures out a whole different side to herself. She was secretive and a little insecure about it, but now she knows she needs to be true to herself and not let him dictate her life." To Read More Click here .

What is Hairspray and Huge star Nikki Blonsky's dream job? Not a guest spot on Glee, surprisingly, but a remake of Murder, She Wrote. "I know a lot of kids don't know what it is, but I love Murder, She Wrote and I love Angela Lansbury. She's my favorite actress," the 21-year-old told TVGuide.com at the Camp Rock 2 premiere. Fans of the actress/singer will be happy to know that she'll showcase her powerhouse pipes in the upcoming season finale of her ABC Family series Huge - just not in the way we're used to seeing her. "It's not Broadway, it's not Hairspray, it's punk rock," Blonsky says. "It's an original song, and that's what makes it so different from any other show on TV - all our music is original."
